If y>0, find the range of all possible values of y such that \(\lceil{y}\rceil\cdot\lfloor{y}\rfloor=42\). Express your answer using interval notation.

Notice that if y > 0

 

6 < y < 7...... will make this true

 

For example....if y = 6.1

The ceiling = 7

And the floor = 6

 

cool cool cool

Actually......your first answer was more "complete" if we allow y to be positive or negative....!!!

6 < y < 7   and     -7 < y < -6    according to W/A.
